Seeing the 908 at Spa recently made me think-Peugeot Sport would be running these cars wouldn't they? Its a complex factory built prototype and the factory would still have the experience and know how to run these cars-for a price that is.

They took the cheap alternative. Like VAG, I think their diesel scandal is going to hurt them and any expenditure like an lmp1 program will not be approved. Shame

Oh lets allow these jokers to help draft the new rules, that way it will be doubly embarrassing when they decide not to join.

The new rules are scrapped. Hopefully the new ones will be close to the current ones without the reliance of hybrid cars. That's the indication so far! I hope they aren't waiting for any manufacturer. Do they are now and build up the small teams then see if manufacturers are interested.

They're choosing rallycross over LMP1 as much as I choose meatloaf over wagyu beef on a daily basis. With over 1 billion in penalties looming, they quite simply can't afford it...so they do something cheap that makes it look like a choice. The WRX programme probably costs 1/20 of what an LMP1 effort would cost.

Let's face it, what killed LMP1 wasn't the ACO or a set of rules but Dieselgate. It was all built on a hollow foundation without the ACO even knowing about these underlying problems. Not their fault this time around.

I agree. Probably a fraction of the cost of their Dakar program also, which they're dropping.

Very good interpretation of Peugeot of a virtual prototype hybrid for the game Gran Turismo. The car seems to have front engine, 825kg and 750 HP.

Is there anyone that doesn't know what Gran Turismo is at this point? Especially after all the VGTs we've seen.

Those manufacturer's make them. That's their "vision" of a future GT. Their quite the hit, considering the Mercedes Vision GT is in the new Justice League movie

Too bad cars like the hydrogen Hyundai or this Peugeot can't become reality.

In this week's AUTOhebdo, Peugeot tell they enter WRX and E-WRX for their growth plans outside Europe and their orientation towards electric cars in the 2020's. The author of the article points out that they don't mention the 5 Billion € fine and the cost of the acquisition of Opel (around 1.7 Billion €).

Thing is, in WRX they only have to offer funding, they don't build the car, Hansen does, they don't run it, he does, they don't build the engines, Oreca do.

I imagine they will obviously be involved in the design and build in some ways, but I doubt that Hansen picks up a Peugeot blueprint and simply toddles off and builds it, they will collaborate. And use Peugeots Sport knowledge and experience.

So all they are doing is providing cash for the program, and that will largely also be bolstered by Loeb and his Red Bull backing.
